Abstract Removal of nitrate and phosphate ions from water, by using the thermophilic cyanobacterium Phormidium laminosum, immobilized on cellulose hollow fibres in the tubular photobioreactor at 43 °C, was studied by continuously supplying dilute growth medium for 7 days and then secondarily treated sewage (STS) for 12 days. The concentrations of NO−3 and PO3−4 in the effluent from the dilute growth medium decreased from 5.0 mg N/l to 3.1 mg N/l, and from 0.75 mg P/l to 0.05 mg P/l respectively… CONTINUE READING
